Los Angeles A patchwork megalopolis defined by My Life PDFEPUB #188 its unlikely cultural collisions the city that raised and shaped Roy Choi the boundary breaking chef who decided to leave behind fine dining to feed the city he loved and with the creation of the Korean taco reinvented street food along the wayAbounding with both the food and the stories that gave rise to Choi's inspired cooking LA Son takes us through the neighborhoods and streets most tourists never see from. Can't help but compare to Eddie Huang's Fresh off the Boat since they have similar stories growing up rich messing up and finding salvation in food Both written in slang which gets grating at times Choi has life experience with the 10 years he has on Huang and he is a trained chef from the Harvard of cooking schools The cook book portion is also a nice concept but likely filler The book feels a little superficial Huang does a better job delving deeper into his identity and why he did the things he did Choi clearly has an addictive personality which provides so much material but doesn't do much with it
